Biography (wiki)

Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke (/ˈbɛ.toʊ oʊ.rɔːrk/, Spanish: ; born September 26, 1972) is an American politician and businessman serving as the U.S. Representative for Texas's 16th congressional district since 2013. In 2018, O'Rourke was the nominee of the Democratic Party in a U.S. Senate race, running against Republican incumbent Ted Cruz. O'Rourke was defeated by Cruz by 2.6 percentage points on November 6, 2018.

A native of El Paso, he was elected to the House of Representatives in 2012 by defeating incumbent Democratic U.S. Representative Silvestre Reyes in the Democratic primary that year. The district includes most of El Paso County. Prior to his election to Congress, O'Rourke was on the El Paso City Council from June 2005 to June 2011.

Robert Francis O'Rourke was born on September 26, 1972, at Hotel Dieu Hospital in El Paso to Pat Francis O'Rourke and his second wife Melissa Martha O'Rourke née Williams. A fourth-generation Irish American, his family always called him "Beto" (a common Spanish nickname for first names ending in "-berto") initially to distinguish him from his namesake grandfather. His mother was the owner of a high-end furniture store, and is the stepdaughter of Fred Korth, Secretary of the Navy under President John F. Kennedy. His father served in El Paso as County Commissioner and then County Judge. He was a political associate of former Texas Governor Mark White, and served as the state chairman of Jesse Jackson’s 1984 presidential campaign. A long-time Democrat, he switched parties in 1991 and ran an unsuccessful bid for the Republican nomination for U.S. Congress.
